Here is another post exemplifying Le Corbusier  as the source of inspiration for generations of architects….

Le Corbusier’s Sketch for “La Ville Radieus(“Radiant City”1924)

Kenzo Tange , (1913- 2005)  winner of the 1987 Pritzker Prize for architecture. He was one of the most significant architects of the 20th century, combining traditional Japanese styles with modernism,. Tange was also an influential protagonist of the structuralist movement. He said: “It was, I believe, around 1959 or at the beginning of the sixties that I began to think about what I was later to call structuralism“, (cited in Plan 2/1982,Amsterdam).

Influenced from an early age by the Swiss modernist, Le Corbusier, in the late 1950s he steered the group towards the movement that became Metabolism.
